What is the purpose of this category?  Yes, it is factually correct, but not really related to the history of the Doom community, except perhaps as an anthropological exercise.  Do we also need Category:Puns, to include the Evilution and Mock 2 articles?

  • Delete.    But mainly because this is just making the wiki a messier place while it can still stand to be cleaned up. However, I'd like to bring this category back when we all start calling it The Doom Game That Came Between Doom 2 And Doom 3 So It Isn't Really Final. Zack 00:51, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Agreed. Delete. -- Janizdreg 03:12, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep. More and more Doom-related retronyms may be coined over time! --Chex guy 19:30, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Your optimism is appreciated, but we seem to have our hands full documenting things that have actually happened.    Ryan W 21:39, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
